I have some general insurance questions...searching did not answer them. VAST now requires insurance to ride in Vermont. Every time I call to get an insurance quote they ask what state I am in (Connecticut). I guess I am asking if I need to insurance in Vermont to ride VAST trails. I plan to register in VT, not in CT. I would assume I just need to show my policy from CT and VT will grant a VAST pass...correct?

One more question...if I were to let someone else drive the sled...would they be insured too? Does the insurance stay with the sled or the driver?

Thanks,
Ray

Why don't you ask the insurance company why they want to know? In Canada all sleds require insurance unless you are operating it soley on your own property. The insurnce is on the machine not the person so any one with a valid driver licence is is insured on your sled.

within the past day, I got insurance from Vermont, I also am in CT, near Bristol actually, the number for the place I got it from is 802-626-3354. Tell them that the sled is kept indoors in Vermont, you'll need an address of someone that lives there, I used one of my aunt's cabin address. You'll need the ID number for the sled too. Tell them you have lots of experience snowmobiling, all you need is the most basic cheapest liability, its not like anything really of value is going to be destroyed in the woods, other than somone else's sled if they were to run into you or something, thats all I can think of, I hoped that helped alittle.

Thanks guys...well I called Foremost yesterday and picked up just liability for 99 bucks a year. I think this is a good price for a 23 year old with a 800cc machine. Foremost was great to work with.

Thats a real good deal, whats the number for Foremost? I got quoted at 320 for a XC 700 and I'm 21. umm, I actually went to Naugatuck Valley Community College in Waterbury CT, they offer an Associats degree in automotive technology. Its alot better than just a certificate program at a place like Porter and Chester and places like those, trust me, it helps having a degree over a certificate when trying to find a job. oh, and I don't just plan on riding in Veromont, it justs make the insurance company happy to hear what they want to hear, they can't make you stay in one state, that would be ludacris.

You can call Foremost at: 1-800-903-8104
Website: http://www.foremost.com

They quoted me something like $325 for a full policy with collision, fire, theft, etc...but I decided to go with just the liability.
